Saw quite reasonable sounding speculation that Zen 4c is just Zen 4 with SRAM moved to stack caches. Thus why 50% more cores are possible in what we might reasonably assume is the same socket. If that's the case for servers that could be the case for desktop as well. Could still see an HEDT 24 core CPU launch second half of next year or so.Since 24c is not happening and it seems there is not really a much place under the IHS to fit additional chiplets (for whatever reason i thought it is, i remember seeing some mockup scheme showing it should be possible, but cant find it anymore), do you think AMD does not really count with more than 16 core on mainstream platform in upcoming years? I mean, throughout the life of AM5? Or do you think future chiplets (say as soon as in Zen5) are going to be smaller or pack more cores?
